Scope

The scope section is provided by the collector, with input from the scholar(s), and attempts to estimate the scope of the group that performs the processes described: How broadly do the practices described in this narrative apply to others in same field, in related fields, etc?

  1. In the opinion of the scholar, who participates in the process the story describes?
    (e.g. "just this scholar", "many people in the scholar's field of inquiry", "all academics", etc.)
  2. What is this process intended to accomplish for the scholar?
  3. Who is the intended audience of the processes described?
  4. Is this the only process the scholar uses to accomplish his/her goals?
  5. What "shared services" would help transform the story into something of more benefit for the scholar or his/her audience?  What process or processes in the story could be automated?

An open platform on which a variety of storage, preservation, access, and use services could be built upon and seamlessly interact. As the broader web moves towards cloud-level computing, one approach that would allow researchers and technologists supporting researchers to scale their efforts and provide next-generation services it to be able to build upon a common network-level platform that would provide open and consistent access to data, resources, and core services. If this platform existed, it would not only reduce the amount of recreating the wheel efforts, but it would also enable new and interesting research that could take advantage of data and resources in a much greater scale.

    Larger than Work Spaces? That is, a description of the Bamboo services platform vision (or, even, of the entire technology proposal vision)?
